Last days of (A Film Called) Ellipsis. Writer Anna Sanderson’s residency project finishes this Sunday 21 August, 5pm.

Opening next Saturday 27 August:
Leonid Tishkov and Boris Bendikov: Private Moon
Utilising humour, satire and poetic tenderness, Moscow-based artists Leonid Tishkov and Boris Bendikov provide poignant insights into the human condition, particularly the relationship between personal will and state control as experienced in Soviet Russia. This exhibition presents their most recent series of large-scale colour photographs. Each depicts an intimate and evolving relationship between a man and his Private Moon.
Exhibition organised by Marcus Williams, Unitec, Auckland.
27 August–2 October 2011

Critic’s talk:
